The Pew Commission on Industrial Farming

Has anyone started reading the book yet? If you would like to participate in the community discussions at Barnes & Noble, you can stop at our kick-off book discussion parties at the libraries at 6:30 on Thursday, March 1 -- or just head to Barnes & Noble at 6:30 on Thursday, March 8 for the first discussion. We will be talking about the Foreword and Chapters 1-3 that evening.

If you've ever wanted to do a book discussion before, but either couldn't get the book read in time, or just felt overwhelmed, this format may be your cup of tea: we're splitting the book into quarters and discussing a different section on each of four successive Thursdays: right-sized, bite-sized pieces to facilitate great conversations.

In the meantime, for a little background reading, you can whet your appetite with the Pew Commission on Industrial Farm Animal Production's recent report: "Putting Meat on the Table: Industrial Farm Animal Production in America." The link will get you to the Executive Report, pretty interesting stuff. What do you think?
